It is an honor and a privilege to teach each and every student and I am looking forward to working with all parents to ensure your student has a fruitful school year.

About Me
Teaching is not just a job for me. It is a lifelong career and I feel blessed to be able to enjoy what I do each and every day. Why do I teach? It’s simple! I want to make a difference in the world. I want to teach because each student deserves a teacher who cares about them and wants them to do their best. I want to instill my love and passion of learning into them.

This is my sixth year at Rippowam Middle School and I feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful school and school system. I have been teaching for a total of nine years and each year makes me smile. I spent some time teaching in Norwalk and North Carolina before I worked in Stamford.
